Wheel bearing installation precautions
1, The wheel bearing is more sensitive, in any case need to use the correct method and the right tool. The components of the bearing must not be damaged during storage and installation. Some bearings require a large pressure to press in, so special tools are required. Be sure to refer to the car manufacturer's instructions.
2. When installing the bearing, it should be in a clean and tidy environment, and the fine particles entering the bearing will shorten the service life of the bearing. It is very important to keep the environment clean when replacing bearings. It is not allowed to hit the bearing with a hoe, pay attention to the bearing not to fall to the ground (or similarly improper handling). The condition of the shaft and housing should also be checked before installation. Even minor wear can cause poor fit and cause early failure of the tilting pad bearing.
3. For the hub bearing unit, do not attempt to disassemble the hub bearing or adjust the seal ring of the hub unit, otherwise the seal ring will be damaged and water or dust will enter. Even the raceways of the seal ring and the inner ring are damaged, resulting in permanent failure of the bearing.
